Tire wear issue

Hey all,

My tires are wearing out rather badly on the interior like I have a lot of negative camber but have never done this type of mod. Any suggestions why? I have an 06 GT. Also I have never replaced the shocks.

Might need an alignment? Do you have bigger wheels. Stock wheels are 17

I would check the toe. I would get slightly uneven wear when I ran major toe out for extra turn in.

Proving to my fellow racers that the disdain that some GT drivers have for V6 drivers is unfounded, one results archive at a time since 2013.

I have stock wheels and it probably needs an alignment. I can't remember last time I got one.

I've definitely had an alignment but no shocks for sure. I was thinking of an OEM replacement. I don't want it lowered and not interested in a harder ride. Any suggestions?

Considering you are referring to inner camber wear ..
I would get some Maximum motorsports CC Plates ..
If the 05-09 are equal to the 99-04 .. where there is little to no adjustment for camber .. just simply toe..
I would grab a pair and get a alignment to get the full job done and take care of the issue.
Would help to rotate tires every 3,000 miles .. if you do not have staggered wheels.

Ofcourse there are cheaper ones , but MM is the best.

They go on top of the strut tower to give you a lot more adjustment for camber / caster for the alignment.

Oh I see. Would I need those for a stock suspension? Thanks for your input.

I am having the same issue, 06 Gt. stock suspension. My father in law is an old alignment shop owner. he tried to tell me my struts collapsed, i tried to argue that the car would just bounce around. But yes CC plates are a great idea, after time springs settle a little from driving. and your caster camber will change. Not adjustable.

I ended up getting new tokiko shocks and struts and everything seems ok. I will see when I go to the tire shop. But I do get a lot of noise when I go over deep ruts or potholes. It sounds like the front is dropping out with a very distinctive noise. Anyone get this?

Just figured mine out. 2 things to check. First is the plastic fender well inserts. My pass front was loose and made a heck of a racket and vibration. Start by using your hand and thump the top of the fender over the tire. If it's loose you'll know ASAP. Second thing to check is the tires. I had to replace my fronts. Due to a toe issue. In some cases being out of alignment pits strain on other areas. Last if your rubber strut mounts are beginning to wear that's another cause of noise.
